International Design Conference
2CO COmmunicating COmplexity
INTERACTIVE DATA VISUALIZATION
The first edition came to a close in Alghero
The first edition of the 2CO_COmmunicating COmplexity International Design Conference came to a close in Alghero,
on saturday October 26, after two days of very productive and intense presentations and discussion.
The conference's success was made possible by the participation of 24 full papers in the three categories Informative animation, Real-time informative visualization and Info-graphics, and 11 posters in the poster and special 'junior track' sessions.
2CO Conference attracted an international audience with participants from USA, UK, Spain, Greece, Poland, Denmark, Germany, Italy, Portugal, France and Cyprus.
The meeting reached an extraordinary intensity and scientific quality, thanks to the key-note lectures from international top ranking experts, Santiago Ortiz speaking about the Dynamic Visualization of Complex Systems; Paul Wells exploring The Case of Industrial Animation and Michael Stoll presenting Infographics as interfaces to level complexity. Graphic Designer/Animator Dave Daniels captivated the audience with an engaging special guest lecture on Simplifying the Obvious to close on Friday evening.
